King University's Dining Hall, King's Den, and Food for Thought are more than just places to eat. You'll quickly find out they'll become central places in your social life. You'll meet new people, hang out with friends and share campus experiences with both resident students and commuters.
As a campus resident, you'll be automatically enrolled in a meal plan when you register for the residence hall. At your orientation session, you'll receive your student ID card, which allows you to eat at the Dining Hall, the King's Den, or Food for Thought.
If you're a commuter student, your needs are different from residential students. The King University Dining Services offers a variety of options.
You may purchase the Unlimited Access Plan or Block Meal Plan. The Unlimited Access Plan is the same plan residential students purchase. It allows you unlimited access to the Dining Hall's meals and a set number of Dining Dollars.
Many commuters have found they need less access to campus dining. If you feel this is your case, you have the following options:
Block Meal Plans
Block Meal Plans give you a determined number of meals to use at your discretion throughout the semester, plus a set number of Dining Dollars. Block Plans allow you to eat in the Dining Hall, King's Den, or Food for Thoughts any time they are open.
Dining Dollars are optional and may be purchased for as little as $50 and deposited onto your Student ID. You'll use your Student ID card like a debit card in the King's Den Snack Bar or Food for Thought to buy meals or snacks. With Dining Dollars, you do not have to carry cash. Plus, you know at all times how much money you have in your account. Money can be added to this account at any time throughout the semester in $25 increments. You may purchase meal plans or Dining Dollars in the Dining Hall, the Business Office or online by clicking here.
You'll eat most of your regular meals in the Dining Hall. Serving a variety of meals three times a day, you can choose from a hot or continental breakfast, or from a variety of entrées, vegetarian dishes, pizza, deli style sandwiches and a salad bar for lunch or dinner. We also have the grill station, pizza station, salad bar, and bakery stations open between meals for continuous dining.
